Roman Infantry Caligae Boot
The Roman Infantry Caligae Boot or Shoe dates from the 1st Century BC to 120 A.D and is from the European Continent at Vindolanda in Britain as well as the Northern Provinces.

The original is a stitched and nailed shoe, This version has a McKay stitched leather sole and is identical in outward appearance to the tunnel-stitch shoe. The pattern of the shoe is exact. The front seam is period edge-to-edge saddle stitch with the threads out. The Roman Infantry Caligae Shoe is made of heavy 5 to 6 oz top grain cow hide leather, leather soles, and modern thong.
Good for Roman reenactment and the SCA.
